One of the largest “wow” moments in the first episode of The Mandalorian is the reveal of the Youngster, an toddler of the identical species as Yoda. Yoda’s precise species and origins have been, famously, shrouded in thriller, however this new character is not the solely time we have seen one of Yoda’s species seem in the Star Wars universe.

Aside from the Youngster and Yoda himself, there has solely been one member of this mysterious species seen in the complete Star Wars canon to this point. Yaddle was a feminine Jedi Grasp who appeared in The Phantom Menace as half of the Jedi Excessive Council. She’s half of the Council scene when Qui-Gon Jinn brings them the information that the Sith have risen once more. She additionally is a component of the early arc of younger Anakin Skywalker: she is there for his analysis when he’s simply 9 years outdated, and he or she is a component of the Council that originally denies Anakin entry into the Jedi Order, then reverses course after Qui-Gon Jinn leaves behind a request that Anakin be skilled.

Following her look in The Phantom Menace, nothing is understood about Yaddle’s whereabouts or final destiny. She is not on the Jedi Council by the time of the Clone Wars, since she doesn’t seem in any of their scenes in later films or collection. The official Star Wars web site only has this to say: “By the time of the Clone Wars, she was no longer on the Council.” One can assume that, as a Jedi Grasp who was in all probability nonetheless alive at the time of the Jedi Purge, she both was killed in the Purge or disappeared into hiding, away from galactic affairs.

The Pressure sensitivity considered considerably widespread amongst Yoda’s species means the Kid’s look is much more necessary than it appears at first. It is not simply any youngster, however one that would have main ramifications for the galaxy in the future. The Mandalorian will reportedly discover extra of the period earlier than the rise of the First Order, so it stays to be seen how the Youngster or probably others of its species may play into issues.
